The piracy taking place in the gulf of Guinea is primarily inshore to Nigerian waters and next door Togo.
Unlike the Somali piracy, these pirates are not interested in the ship itself - Their M.O. has been to sometimes kidnap the crew and hold to ransom. At the same stealing anything they can carry.
